Plenty of Choices

Most cruise lines have a strong internet presence and regularly publish online to announce new ships, destinations, rates, and more. Whether booking your trip online through the cruise line directly or a third-party, you can easily compare reservation rates, cabin availability, and special deals across multiple sites.

With so many options, you’re almost guaranteed to find an itinerary that meets your needs—you just have to be willing to do the legwork.

Book at Your Leisure

Arranging your cruise online gives you the freedom and flexibility to search through a wide variety of cruise lines, destinations and activities on your own schedule. Additionally, if you want more control over specific aspects of your reservation, you will appreciate the high degree of autonomy online booking provides.

Feel like making some last-minute changes to your itinerary? Care to add more guests to your reservation or switch your cabin? Do so at your personal convenience. To enjoy the best choices of reservations and accommodations, however, you’ll have to conduct some research and be ready to pounce when a desirable deal comes along.

Get Access to Exclusive Deals

Either directly through the cruise line’s website or a third-party travel site, you can usually find some amazing—and exclusive—rates and offers.

Websites can occasionally offer special deals such as extra onboard credits or discounts on off-shore excursions, however, you may be required to sign up for email updates for access or notifications about these exclusive promotions.

Whether you’re going for a budget river cruise or luxury ocean voyage, to attain the best rates, booking online is a must.

Work With an Online Travel Advisor

While online booking is generally more convenient, there are still a host of factors to consider to properly plan your cruise itinerary. If you’re going to book your cruise online, your best bet is to find the right online travel advisor to handle the details for you.

Working with a travel professional who is committed to ensuring you have a great time, understands what goes into planning a cruise trip, has knowledge and experience of cruise lines and destinations, and can provide access to exclusive deals courtesy of their supplier partners, is truly the best way to get the most value from your travels.

From matching you with your perfect cruise line and itinerary to alerting you about last-minute changes, using the help of an advisor can go a long way toward making the trip of your dreams a reality.
